MUSIC ON THE MEADOW 2011



Our St Osyth Business Association (S.O.B.A.) had put in weeks of effort organising what has become an annual event in the village, ‘Music on the Meadow’, eagerly anticipated by people living in the village and the surrounding area.
The event has had rain in the past, but as heavy as the showers were at that time in 2004, they passed over and did not spoil the enjoyment. If you click on the link the pictures toward the end show people sheltering under trees and children splashing about in the puddles, Music Rain, but on the 17th July it had been so accurately forecast that people just did not want to chance their attendance!
I was there from 3 p.m. and stayed until 4.15 p.m. to take some photographs for our web pages, but even the car park looked empty. I found a few hardy souls who said the rain would pass and glanced apprehensively at the sky which steadily blackened to the south.
Recorded music was being played whilst I was on the meadow, but even the control tent was enclosed with heavy plastic sheets to stop the rain blowing in, with the engineers huddled inside!
I am sure we all thank the Business Association for the work they put in to give enjoyment to local residents. Always remember it takes to same effort and preparation to run the function on the 17th July rained off this year, as it would if bright sun had shone on massive crowds enjoying themselves – Thank you S.O.B.A.



The first two photographs both look to the south over the Mill Dam, but the final picture looks north over Mill Street, where the sky promised better weather for someone, but not for us!
When I left it was still raining and I did rather feel for those SOBA members who had put the event together, only to have it destroyed by very adverse weather conditions.
